Emmy nominations will be announced on Thursday (July 8) morning at 5:30 (or 5:40) a.m. Pacific and at that point, all of my predictions and analysis will go from "speculatively incorrect" to "factually idiotic." Or maybe I guess there's the vague off chance that my picks could go from "hypothetically absurd" to "eerily prescient." 
 
With that in mind here are the Top Six candidates I picked in each of my Emmy Nomination Predictions galleries, picks which constitute my actual predictions, I suppose... Obvious my explanations for those predictions can be found in the galleries.
 
[My big question is how many actors/shows will be nominated that I didn't even include amongst the 15-to-20 candidates I broke down in each field. That's gonna be a hoot.]
